Eddie Money (real name: Mahoney), a New Yorker relocated to Berkeley,
was a diligent follower of Bruce Springsteen's and Bob Seger's blue-collar
rock when he debuted with Eddie Money (Columbia, 1977), an album that
spawned the hits Two Tickets To Paradise and
Baby Hold On.
Life for the Taking (Columbia, 1978) and
Playing for Keeps (Columbia, 1980) did not duplicate the success,
but they refined the formula of melodic, over-produced album-oriented rock
that flirts with mainstream pop.
The formula worked on No Control (Columbia, 1983), that gave him two
more hits: Think I'm In Love and Shakin'.
Where's the Party (Columbia, 1985) was a lousy copy of the best-seller,
but Can't Hold Back (Columbia, 1986) managed to strike the right balance
between hard-rock, pop and ballad with Take Me Home Tonight.
For a few years, Money continued to offer unassuming power-ballads and
collections of well-tested power-rock cliches:
Nothing to Lose (Columbia, 1988), with Walk on Water,
the single Peace in Our Time (1989),
Right Here (Columbia, 1991), with Heaven In The Backseat.
After drug rehabilitation, Money returned with the mediocre
Love and Money (Wolfgang, 1995) and
Ready Eddie (ManCMC, 1999).
